COMMENT: Striking a chord with readers

First published in News

WITH so much coverage of the perils of playing video games, readers will agree it is refreshing to see a boy shun them in favour of playing guitar.

And Ace Manthey’s efforts with his six string are even more impressive given he was undergoing chemotherapy for cancer at the time.

Having now been given the all-clear, the selfless lad has shown his compassionate side by busking to raise money for charity.

It is wonderful to hear how free playing his guitar with his sister makes him feel.

Faced with a life-threatening condition, he refused to be beaten and instead has made sure to put smiles on other people’s faces.

His parents are no doubt smiling wider than all of them.
